There is something magical about the night sky when there are no street lights about to pollute it isn’t there? Well whether you agree with that statement or not, there’s a cheap way of finding out with Star Walk 2 – Night Sky Guide from Vito Technology now available for only 10p from the Google Play Store.
You may or may not be a budding astronomer, but frankly you can be either and still enjoy the complex simplicity (did I just say that?) of an app like this.
In short Star Walk 2 – Night Sky Guide does exactly what it says in the title. Don’t be clever – of course it doesn’t let you “walk on stars”. What it DOES do is guide you through the Night Sky and gives a lot of information as to what you might be pointing your smartphone towards.
Simply point your device at a specific point in the sky and the built-in compass and the application technology will align the night sky with a map of the stars to help find constellations, specific clusters, information on planets, moon phases and much more.
Take a look at the app, and be sure to come back for our review of this application. It’s not only educational, it’s also quite a wicked piece of technology!
